Boating Contributes to Better Health

I thought this would be an interesting topic to discuss. A recent study showed that non-boaters have poorer health than boat owners. Boat owners showed to have higher satisfaction on the quality of their life.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We found we were much healthier than normal for us when we were cruising.
I attribute it too...less contact in confined spaces with germs, better diet and more excercise than work provided, less stress, more fun and endorphins!!

I would wholeheartedly agree with this...except when you slip and fall into the bilge and tear the medial meniscus in your right knee.

SailinJay...now that you mention it I did tear my rotator cuff...but I don't think of that as a health issue...just body and fender damage due to stupidity!

Poopdeck...it is even better at night when their little chemical trails light up your wake!!

I would often call into work (back in the dark ages) on Mondays, saying I had to stay at the lake because I was Landsick. Oddly enough, they never bought it.

PBzeer-

Actually, I've seen it happen... if you spend long enough on a boat, and go back to land, the land seems like it is moving.... With one of my friends... first time they did a week-long trip.... they got back and ended up getting "seasick" on land...
